Once again the Rotary Club of Swindon Phoenix will be holding the Swindon Dragon Boat Race to raise funds for your chosen charities and good causes.
Dragon Boat racing is an ancient Chinese tradition over 2000 years old and is one of Britain's most competitive water sports. It's a great way to raise money and it's spectacular, colourful, exciting and fun! No experience or pre-event training required as a full safety briefing is given in the day!
If you can get a team of 12-20 people together why not give it a go and enter a boat. Teams can be made up from Work Colleagues, Local Clubs, Groups of Friends or any other organizations, if you can't fill a full why not ask another friendly charity or group to join you and share a boat.
There will also be a prize to the team with the best Fancy Dress (NB Keep in mind you have to be able to wear your life preserver during the race)
There will be lots of things to see and do on Dragon Boat Day apart from the racing.
Those being planned at present may include art and craft stalls, a health & wellbeing zone, a food festival, a raffle, a barbecue, a bar, children’s entertainment including rides - and of course Coate Waters very special, ride on train rides, the pitch & putt course and crazy golf, not forgetting the superb children’s splash pool.
